We know that before your child starts in our Nursery they will have had a wide range of different experiences. They will have learnt a great deal from their families and will have developed a variety of interests and skills.

At Elton Primary we aim to develop your child’s confidence and build upon what they have learnt from you. Working with you and your family ensures that your child enjoys a happy and educationally rewarding time at our Nursery.
